The mission of iDREAM for Racial Health Equity, a project of Community Partners, is committed to equipping a learning community of visionaries with a comprehensive understanding of Black maternal and infant health throughout the life course.
i.D.R.E.A.M. is an acronym for our core values:
Integrate: collaborating technology, new-found learning and cultural perspectives to address the issues of racial health equity.
Diversify: embracing racial and gender differences in order to create a unified community where individuals can freely share ideas and develop new ways of thinking.
Retain: remembering lessons learned and acknowledging the history of women and families impacted by poor birth outcomes as a source of reference and relevance to combat the infant mortality crisis.
Educate: passing on our knowledge of racial health equity to the public while allowing individuals to partake in community dialogue so that we may swiftly, but strategically discover innovative solutions.
Activate: proactively setting ideas and solutions into motion and creating awareness and passion of our mission through different outlets.
Mentor: guiding another within or outside the organization by sharing experiences/knowledge, passion for the cause and giving never-ending support.
